Despite Their Fear

Description

Do you ever find yourself focusing on, even fearing, what people think of you? Return to a place of worship and rebuild so that you can pursue your God-inspired vision.

Do you ever find yourself focusing on, even fearing, what people think of you? As Joshua and Zerubbabel began to rebuild the temple after the exile, they soon found themselves fearful of the people around them. Despite fearing what others thought or might do, they focused on restoring what was needed to worship God.

Where do you need to return to a place of worship and rebuild so that you can pursue your God-inspired vision?

Despite their fear of the peoples around them, they built the altar on its foundation and  sacrificed burnt offerings on it to the LORD, both the morning and evening sacrifices (Ezra 3:3).

Prayer: Lord, turn my attention from what others think of me and let me have eyes only for what You think of my life and work. Replace fear of people with a reverent awe of You that drowns out all else. Keep me focused on what You've called me to do. In Jesus' name, amen.
